Ugandan Umaru Kasumba has been ruled out of Sofapaka's last match of the season against Zoo FC.

Kasumba's season ended with one match to go after the Ugandan suffered an ankle injury in Sofapaka’s 2-2 draw against Nakumatt last weekend. He is likely to sit out for at least three weeks. Veteran midfielder Ibrahim Kitawi will also be missing in action.

Kitawi resumed training this week after recovering from a fractured skull after colliding with a teammate during training two months ago but the game against Zoo comes a little too early for the former Gor Mahia midfielder.

“Kasumba has been ruled out of our final match due to an ankle injury and Kitawi still doesn’t have match fitness, despite returning to full  training after recovering from a head injury,” coach John Baraza told the club website,

The 2009 league champions have, however, been boosted by the return of Rwanda international Mico Justin, who has been out for personal reasons.

Batoto Ba Mungu are currently fifth on the log with 52 points from 33 matches and a win against Zoo may see them finish the season third if Ulinzi and Tusker lose or draw their respective matches against  Mathare United and Gor Mahia respectively.
